Sadly I dont own Inuyasha :( Review please
The ball was tonight and for once I wasn't bothered by the fact that I had to wear a fucking tuxedo, no I was more worried about Kagome, who I knew for a fact was faking her happy and nonchalant demeanor.
"Why do we go to these damn things?" Kouga groaned as he buttoned up his dress shirt.
"Because our girlfriends would kick our asses if we didn't" Miroku answered Kouga as he himself buttoned up his shirt.
"Psh, Ayame couldn't kick my ass."
"I'd gladly bet against you." I said trying to hide the fact that I was worried. I knew I should be though but I couldn't help it. Our parents had hand selected the guest list so I hoped there would be no problem's. I sighed and buttoned my own shirt. I headed towards the bathroom and ran a brush through my unruly hair.
"Stop stressing man." Kouga said to me as he joined me at the counter.
"Nobody is going to mess with Kagome tonight." Miroku said also joining us, what was them following me everywhere?
"Yeah that place is always locked down tight when your family throws a party!" Kouga said trying to light my mood.
"Your right." But it didn't feel right, I could wash away the feeling that something bad was going to happen tonight.
I stepped into the gown and Ayame and Sango pulled it up. I tenderly slipped my arms in the sleeves and then the zipped the back.
"Beautiful as always." Ayame said as she stepped in front of me to admire my dress. She also looked amazingly lovely in the dress I had picked out.
"She always does." Sango said joining her in front of me, she also look stunning. I picked up the dress so I could walk over to the mirror. I did look beautiful I had to admit, all my scars hid, I smiled. But there was a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach. Sure the feel good feelings were helping disguise it but it was still there. I shook my head to try to dispel it and turned to face them.
"It's going to be a good night." I said trying to convince my self.
After spending about thirty fucking minutes smiling for the paparazzi, me and Kagome we were finally able to enter the ball room of the Hilton. Kagome looked amazingly stunning even if the gown covered everything. We were instantly greeted by her mother and grandfather who tried slamming an ancient scroll on my head then decided that I was not a dangerous demon and decided I was suitable for his grand daughter, of course Kagome laughed during this whole episode. Finally we joined all of our friends at a table in the back of the room.
"This is lame." Kouga complained and propped his feet up on the table which garnered him a slap across the head from Ayame. I glanced over at Kagome who was fidgeting with the sleeves of her gown, I reached over and took her trembling hands in my own gave her a stern glance and laid them down. When the woman ever learn? She looked damn fine!
"So where's the after party?" Miroku asked, and the not so sneakily took a sip from his flask.
"Is that all you think about?" Sango asked.
"No, I think about you and then alcohol then your butt, then your boobs, then alcohol, then you again." Miroku said which earned him a smack, I was hoping that I wouldn't be next in this pattern. I felt Kagome's rise and cowered.
"Don't worry, I just want to go for a walk in the garden." She whispered in my ear. I turned to look at her smiling face. I stood up and wrapped my arm around her shoulders.
"Don't cause to much trouble why were gone." She said with a laugh.
"Oh come on sis, what kind of trouble can we cause?" Kouga asked.
"Well last year you spiked the punch." I said.
"And the year before that, you personally offended the mayor."
"And the year before that " Miroku started.
"Alright Alright I get it! Have no fun at all." He said and leaned back into his chair.
"That's the spirit!" Kagome said and we headed out to the garden.
Inuyasha looked handsome, even more so then her normally did, and hell I had to admit the boy cleaned up well. Everything was going right, so why did I still have the feeling of dread lingering over my head? Once we were out the side doors of the ballroom and in the beautiful garden I felt a little bit better. Inuyasha held my hand tenderly as we glided past the beautiful flower's. I spotted a stone bench and went over and sat on it and Inuyasha did the same. He kissed my head gently.
"You look beautiful." He whispered in my ear and I looked up and smiled at him.
"You don't look so bad yourself."
"When do I ever look bad?"
"Never." I smiled sheepishly.
"And either do you." He said and kissed me gently then. Way to soon he pulled away.
"I think we better check on Kouga, he can get in trouble with out even trying to." I said and stood up and laughed. I grabbed his hand and pulled him up also. He grabbed my hand and held it tightly as we made it back to the door's leading towards the ball room. Then I heard my name called, I turned to her a beautiful woman in a nice suit with a microphone in her hand and a camera man behind her, with Muso, Kyokotsu, and Mukotsu with huge smiles on their face.
"Ms, Higurashi, would you like to make a comment on the upcoming case against your boyfriend?" The lady said with a smile and I felt my blood froze.
"She has no comment!" I yelled, what the fuck was this bitch doing here with those fuckers? I thought my father had made sure no media would be able to make their way into the actual event? I pulled Kagome close to me, and wrapped my arm around my shoulder.
"He's not my boyfriend." I heard her say in strained voice.
"Excuse me?" The reporter said and pointed her microphone towards us.
"She said he is not her boyfriend and that is all." I glanced around and almost smiled when I saw three officers heading our way.
"Officer's please escort these people off the premises." I said as they approached us.
"Is there a problem here?" One asked completely ignored me.
"Not at all officer's just trying to get a comment." The reporter said.
"About what?" Another officer asked.
"That bitch there claims that our friend tried to kill her, when really she was trying to off herself." Muso said smugly.
"Escort them off the property!" I screamed at them and once again it went ignored. I could feel Kagome shaking and I pulled her closer and tightened my hold.
"And you are?" The other officer turned to look at us.
"Inuyasha Takashi and Kagome Higurashi."
"Are you sure about that?"
"Of course I'm sure, call my father!" I screamed at them again, what the fuck was wrong with them. Just then I saw a swish of silver and like lighting my brother was standing next to us, with a murderous glare in his eye.
"He is the son of Mr. Takashi, as you know I am also, I don't think it would smart to question him, or more importantly me."
"Mr. Takashi, do you have any comment on the trial…" the reporter began.
"You have no authority to be talking about this case." Sesshomaru said quickly cutting her off
"Do you know anything about this case Mr Takahashi?" She tried to start again.
"I am well versed in the case, and there is a gag order for all parties involved, so officers if you could arrest these three." He said pointed towards Muso, Kyokotsu, and Mukotsu.
"I believe you don't have the authority to authorize arrests." The reporter sneered with a joyous smile. What the fuck was wrong with her? Was she really that sick to risk a girls sanity over a story?
"No, but I do. Officers do as he asked." I turned to see who had spoke only to see Judge Oni. He was one of my father's good friends.
"On what terms?" Muso screamed at him.
"For violating the gag order, which I made clear included witnesses." Judge Oni said with a stern face.
"I will have petition on your boss's desk start of the day Monday for this footage." Sesshomaru said and then turned around and stalked off. I watched as the three officers who had early questioned who we were arrest the boys.
"This isn't over Kagome, he knows you have a new boyfriend, you dumb bitch! You better cherish your days!" Kyokotsu yelled at her while they dragged him away. I pulled her closer.
"He will never hurt you again." I whispered in her ear. She looked up to me with a sad smile.
"Let's see what we can do to salvage the night." She said grabbing my hand and leading me into the building and on to the dance floor. I followed even though all I wanted to do was take her home and hold her tightly.
